Trivia Night 2014


LHS is committed to the growth, progress and the advancement of all our activity programs.  It has been our goal as a department to do everything within our power to give our programs the tools they need to be as competitive as possible.  Due to budget constraints and in order to meet those needs, we must generate dollars to purchase items for enhancing these programs.

This year, the LHS Activities Department will again hold our 4th Annual Trivia Night on Friday, November 14 to benefit all of our programs.  Not only will this event assist us in our fundraising efforts, it will be a great night for our families!

Our LHS Cougar Activities are committed to excellence, with a clear vision and a passion for delivering outstanding results in the classroom and on the field of play!  We ask you to work with us to capitalize on our growth.

We ask that each family of an athlete participate by selecting one of the options below.  Can’t make the date?  Have plans that evening, but want to support your son/daughter and our programs?  No problem!  There are other options available.

1.  Purchase 2 seats for Trivia Night @ $25/each.

2.  I am unable to attend and I prefer to make a contribution to the LHS Activities Department.  I will send in a check to the office in support of my son/daughter.

Please use the following URL to register for Trivia Night:  http://lutheranhighstcharles.sportssignup.com/site

To see more about Trivia Night and what our coaches, mentors, and advisors have done with the proceeds, please visit our website: http://lutheranhighstcharles.com/athletics/trivia-night/

Get those tables together!  Thank you for your past, present and continued support of LHS!

Coach Weber Attains CSCS Certification


Dustin's Weber

As you know, our new Strength and Conditioning Coach, Dustin Weber, has been working with all of our athletes after school in our performance program.  Specifically, what is the Performanceprogram?  For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”

LHS is proud to announce that Coach Weber has recently attained his certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The CSCS signifies Coach Weber as a “professional who applies scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance.”  He has the expertise to conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention.

For the remainder of the fall, our LHS Performance sessions will run 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Mondays through Thursdays.  Remember, it is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 22 sports!) that all winter and spring athletes plan to attend these workouts.

The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following:  a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.

Further, LHS and our individual 22 athletic programs have worked hard creating a unified culture of performance training.  Creating a unified program that has the support of physical education staff, coaches, and athletes is a key to building the best possible performance program. The head performance coach will work closely with the coaching staffs of each sport to develop a program appropriate for the athletes participating in that sport.

To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Program Objectives:

1.  Provide a safe, competitive, energetic and positive training environment
2.  Decrease chances of injury through conditioning and exercises that ensure muscle balance and flexibility
3.  Enhance balance and stability through functional training using sport specific exercises
4.  Educate athletes in proper training techniques and weight room protocols
5.  Instill an appreciation of hard work and commitment in LHS athletes

Primary Goals of the LHS Performance Program:

1.  Glorify God in our training, words, and actions
2.  Stimulate positive physiological adaptations
3.  Improve confidence and mental toughness
4.  Intensity under coach’s supervision
5.  Progression and Recording Data
6.  A Variety of Total Body Training
7.  Reduce the likelihood and severity of injury

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Dustin Weber via email at weber@lhssc.org.
